I had an opportunity to drive one a couple years ago and was impressed with the speed, but it would not replace the 930 for me. I'd like one as a winter beater maybe

The 996 is just so refined compared to the 930, its just sort of boring to me. I drove a friend's 993 turbo and I have the same complaint. For a daily driver, either would be much easier to live with, but as a weekend toy I think the 930 experience is hard to beat.

You may be on to something with the 965. They are supposed to be a bit more modern feeling than the 930. I'd like to drive one of those to see if they manage to retain enough rawness to scratch the itch.
965s are kinda boring as it is too civilized. I believe mine is probably headed to Florida in a week or so to its new owner. The 996 is rather numb and even more boring than the 965. The 930 is where it is at!
